We spent the day with the most gorgeous and lovely Mary Leest (@maryleest) shooting our most beloved collection Le Romantique. She stunned us with her effortless moves and beauty.
Mary is an Instagram sensation, her lifestyle photos are so captivating, she’s managed to obtain almost 1 million followers! Mary is also a well known Russian Youtuber and Fashion Blogger and trust us we did our homework on her and nowhere did it state that she was previously a Fashion Model!
For last week’s photo shoot, we skipped the postcard beaches and found our way to a tiny beach tucked away behind one of Oahu’s swankiest neighborhoods. We traded crowds and sweltering sunshine for quieter shores and shady spots and here, we found the perfect place to shoot our newest collection, Moonlight Mele. At San Lorenzo Bikinis, our signature approach to swimwear is a ‘less is more’ attitude, meaning we’re always aiming for the tiniest tanlines possible! (Any lover of the Caged Thong or V Knot will vouch for that!) However for this collection, we thought of the beach babes who feel that sometimes, only ‘more is more’. For Moonlight Mele, we reimagined our favorite styles with a little extra something – extra coverage.
And just like that, Miami Swim Week 2016 is wrapped! This year we debuted our newest collection Le Romantique. Our ambition was to create a powerful experience, a fantasy of infinite travel with french infusion. Envision a girl with a free soul embarking on her travels through Europe and her craving for wanderlust is what drives her passion. Weren’t able to make it? No problem. Keep reading to feel like you were sitting front row at our show & sipping drinks from coconuts at our cocktail party.
We want you all to be able to experience the aloha we felt at this show. You can expect to feel the translated passion from the artisans that handmade each and every ‘kini in the collection. Le Romantique is an ode to the creative spirit. Needless to say, our SL babes absolutely rocked these looks on the runway.
We searched the hills of Los Angeles and Orange County to find four killer muses for our Mind Bali Soul collection, who truly embody San Lorenzo Bikinis and the collection. To kick off our Muse Series, we shot the beautiful and ever so talented Julia Friedman in four looks worthy of the pages of Sports Illustrated. Julia has been with the collection since Miami Swim Week 2015, where she first debuted her flawless runway skills in our fashion show. Get to know our muse more, as she went in-depth about modeling, bikinis and her plans for the future.
Last week we had the pleasure of working with one of our ultimate girl crushes, Scarlett Leithold, for one of the most stunning Mind Bali Soul shoots to date. With her killer bikini bod, gorgeous looks and beautiful personality, she was nothing short of perfection throughout our day of shooting.
